Printed here are the memoirs of your classfthe class of '43, In other words, your record of high school events, as visioned in a rose colored mirror, designed to reflect only your happiest moments, and few or none of the sadder ones. You will lind no account of tests, hut the record of stories, parties, plays, concerts, and sports. Only the editors know just how much usweatu was shed in the attempt to make this hook as you would like it. Only the editors have experienced the sleepless nights, the days of weary toil, and the hourflike minutes fleeting into dayflong hours. Therefore, criticize justly the work herein, for too severe criticism may prove fatal to the complete enjoyment of this hook. Uthers have also suffered for this puhlication, and to them we extend warm appreciation: First, to the Commercial Department for their generous supply of nimhle Nkcyfpickersuz secondly, to the English Department for their kind cooperation and guidanceg lastly, to those students who have given willingly of their time and effort, and without whom this hook might never have been puhlished. Having now deciphered the signiicant markings on the sands of time, we let a wave of relief wash higher and ohliterate our markings, so that only the memory is lett ---only your memories and this "Beehive".

Signed : Witnesses : Kathryn Casale Joe the Moron William Whalen Superman Virginia Stowell Joe Blow . Sam Martin NINETEEN -A' FORTY-THREE 353431 f 'A' 'kv NEW BRITAIN if -A' Class Prophecy The ominous hour of midnight struck, and through the cemetery the low tone of a bell slowly faded into a dead silence. This year of 2013 seemed to lose all signs of the Zlst. century, and seemed to move backward into the days of yesteryear . . . the days of 1963. In the cem' etery a transparent figure, wearing a luminous robe, was floating from grave to grave, from tomb to tomb, calling each spirit within by name. At last the face of the floating figure began to take on signs of an earthly being, and soon came to be distinguished as that of George Neumann. I recognized George and, being curious ffor I was from another cemetery myselfj I called him over for an explanation of the evening's happenings, and what he meant by disturbing the graves of these peaceful dead and arousing their spirits. I sat on a small piece of grass and George sat down beside meg the story he told was thus: Tonight is the night of reunion, the night of the resurrection of those spirits who . . . shfshfshf sh graduated from New Britain Senior High School in 1943. Tonight is the night that they will reckon for their lives and their ambitions. Tonight . . . but, oh . . . I see the first of them moving this way. "Oh spirit, pray tell, who might you be"? Lifting her hand, she majestic' ally pointed to the epitaph on a nearby grave stone, and bade us read: KATHRYN CASALE A Lawyer was she, Class Afl, She lies here now, Her arguing done. As we raised our heads after reading the epitaph, we saw that Kay's spirit had disapf peared, and on the stone marking the grave where she had been standing was written: JOSEPH SCAPELLATI GONE! At this point George started his tour of the cemetery, pausing at a few stones to execute a "Shuffle off to Buffalo", and sang: Tap, tap, number one, Louise Diemente, She's had her fun. Tap, tap, number two, Caslen's gone, Forgotten too. Tap, tap, number three, Ellie Kopczyk, A nurse was she. Tap, tap, here's number four, William Whalen, The man girls adore. Tap, tap, number five, Ruthie Statcheri, Always hep to the jive. And now we come to number six, Who merits a place in this ghastly list, Felix J. Roman, Whose name you know, Who'd have thought this was the place he'd go. And now we come to number seven, Helen Labas, Enough said, she's gone to heaven. I've sung enough of this silly ditty, I'll have to admit, it's corny, not witty, I stamp my foot and end this song, Hurry, ghosts, let's move along. I did want to read other epitaphs, but pre' ferred to make my own explorations, so I parted from my cemetery guide. And behold! There before me lay a plot of scorched earth. At Hrst I hestitated to approach, but then, noticing a stone on this blackened ground, I cautiously step' ped closer to read: N. B. H. S. TEACHERS Nor wind, nor rain, nor hurricane, Can move us from this plot. We've turned this once fair grassy lane, Into a blackened blot. Wandering, I came into a black section of the cemetery, and I had to grope my way in the darkness. At last this blackness gave way to light as a procession of luminous figures came into view. Each carried his own epitaph, and I recognized them as old classmates. First was the fairftressed maiden, Gloria Golin, carrying her epitaph: ' E My life was devoted to shorthand, A stenographer was I, I was always very good to my boss, It's a pity I had to die. E BEEHIVE -k wk 152 ir uk H IGH scHooL f-Tfbcbilx Class Prophecy The next was a white haired person: THOMAS PUSTELL He engineered his way to fame. Following Tom, came an endless line of spirits, short, tall, big, small, men and women. Among them were a few familiar faces, and I associated the following names and epitaphs with them: JOSEPH PRESTASH Life fashioned him a sailor. MARY DREZEK She wore the cap of a nurse. JOHN SCRABULIS His occupation? Why manager of the "Follies Bergeresu, of course. ANN VALUKEVICH She sat on her boss's lap. You guess her occupation. JOHN GRIB Here lies the hulk of Sergeant Grib. MILDRED ZINKY She finally got her man. EDWARD MALINA He tinkled with radios until finally One tinkled back a little too hard. MARGARET NEVULIS She insured her position by working in an Insurance oliice. DONALD ROSS He was a man of justice, commonly called a amp... 163 NINETE ROSE FRUGALE She's traded her nurse's garb for this ghastly shroud. I The procession went on and on, and when the end came into view we saw Bill Conlin, painting on his white tombstone these cryptic words: Tread ye lightly o'er this grassy mound, And hush your idle chatter, Here lies a fine artist of great renown, The Raphael of his old Alma Mater. So painting, he vanished, and again I was left alone. Floating along a lane of graves, I noticed many names of people I once knewg Julia Sargis, Teacher, Henry Juengst, Engineer, Gloria Bradley, Dieticiang Karl Erickson, Avif ator, Clara Evanauskas, Laboratory Technician, Joseph Salafia, Electrician. Expecting to find another small stone, I was amazed to find myself confronted by a huge brownstone memorial with a granite fiddle gracing its summit. "Just like Tcrcyakv, I muttered, and hastened on. I soon found that there were others in the cemetery besides myself, and hearing eerie shieks and the flutter of wings, I looked up to see . . . I'll admit even I was a bit startled . . . Vampires! ll Yes, there were three, the ref modeled type of vampire, complete with bony wings and long yellow fangs. One bore the re' scmblence to our own Betty Jane Barber, and alas, to my amazement, two other familiar faces, those of Evelyn Thompson, and . . . oh no! It couldn't be true . . . a male vampire . . . and who should it be but Francis Fliss. To get away from this cackling trio, I turned and fled, my glowing robe trailing behind me. Quite a dis' tance from this scene, I sat on the tombstone of Robert Spooner, once one of the outstanding photographers of his day, to recuperate from the previous visage, and while there I read some of the epitaphs on the nearby stones: JOAN FLANAGAN Golden haired and wordly wise, Adventure gleaming in her eyes. EN -k FORTY-THREE THE BEEH f f1N NEW Class Prophecy PATSY JOHNSON This is where Patsy is resting her head, Her days at TCC are over and dead, We loved her because she was sweet and demure, As for people like Patsy, we hope there are more. ROBERT NYGREN Here lies the corpse, Of the famous Bob N., Friendly and honest, A man among men. JEANNE LAMBERT Here lies a girl named Jeanne Lambert, The greatest of journalists yet, ' And when she is joined in the ranks of the dead She'll be running St, Peter's Gazette. SOPHIE FORMICA Here lies Sophie, small in size, A person proven much too wise, But she never more will rise, To show the smallness of her size. CLIFTON CHERPACK The first three years he went to school, He'd never cut classes and never fool, Later on old Cliff got wise, And answered the call of two laughing eyes. A AURORA BAHAMONDE Never more the earth to rove, Her humor was too subtle, She gave the world her broadened views And now with Keats doth huddle. 9 HELEN PISARSKY Erected in loving memory by her boss, Waldemar Peltzer, He mourned her loss. JOHN RAPPANOTTI He cured their ills, A With all his pills, But his patients died, When they saw his bills. At this point I felt a quivering beneath me, and Spooner's muffled voice came from below: "Get the . . . I mean get off my stone". Not wanting to encounter the wrath of my fellow spirit, I quickly moved, only to come upon two distilled spirits, John McEnaney and Walter Schwanke, partaking of their early morning snack. I joined them, and was about to eat a delicious bowl of "Ghost Toastiesu and "Evap- orated Milk", when I was beseiged by a host of my former classmates who had made their mark in the world. Among them was Henry Plochf arczyk, an eminent physician who was outstand- ing for his development of the formula for milk of amnesia, a sure cure for Ghostraitis or inf flamation of the Ghostric Glands. Another, Henry Warchol, one of the foremost lawyers of his day, was very eager to tell the case he had won for Donald Stohl, who claimed his hair had been scorched and frizzled by a permanent at Antoinette DeFazio's Beauty Parlor. As the chilly air began to seep through my wispy body, I shivered, pulled tighter the muffler from Mark Jones' International Clothing Corp., and wished these braggarts would find some other victim to inflict their woes upon. I grew more and more tired of hearing the din of my boasting classmates, but what could I do? The noise was making my head whirl. I was dizzy, and wanted to run. Then I heard the piercing cry of a rooster, heralding the spirits to their graves. Perhaps I could visit these friends again sometime, but they were fast going and so was I. As my pale Hgure began to disintegrate, I could see George, floating through the cemetery before me, shooing the spirits into their graves. In my last glimpse of the cemetery, I saw, silf houetted against the sunrise, a lonely leafless tree, marking the spot of my ghostly rendezvous.

December 11, 1942 saw the successful production of the comedy 'flobyna Steps Out", with Virginia Burr as Jobyna, a young innocent girl who had an eventful evening when she stepped out for a little gayety. On March 19, 1943 "They All Want Something" was produced. This was a comedy of the "new-rich" and the uplift movement. The plot was thickened by the arrival of a tramp, skillfully portrayed by William Whalen. What he wanted and how he got it added humor to the situation. This year the club purchased some much needed furniture with the proceeds from several previous plays. It also celebrated the twentyffifth anniversary of its founding. On April 14, 1943, Mrs. Guilford and a group of club members went to Hart' ford to see Ethel Barrymore in the play "The Corn is Green." We paused three times in our work of the year for a little merryfmaking, and the initiation of new candidates. The last party for these new members was held on April 23, 1943, when sundry bangs, whacks, and howls attested to the skill and strength of those who did the initiating. Everyone survived, however, which was rather surprising in view of the stunts played. The following ofiicers have served for the year: Samuel Martin ..... President Joseph Belkin and Richard Peters . Treasurers Virginia Stowell . . . .

A small group of ten young people enrolled to learn more about their LatinfAmerican neighbors and to have a grand time socially. The group wrote to Washiiigtmiii and got a charter to become one of the first chapters of the Student PanfAmerican League in the country. Members of the club have a brief course in elementary Spanish, hear speakers from distant countries, and see a score of movies. The League is a National Organigaf tion, sponsored by such notables as Secretary of State, Cordell Hull, and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. Soon after the organization of the league a National Convention was held in Richmond, Virginia. Our delegate to the convention was Fred Bickerton, who was elected treasurer of all the chapters in the eastern states. The following vear. Emma Willianis of New Britain, also, won a trip to Washiiugtciii, sponsored by the National PanfAmerican Society. When Mr. Henry Recano was called to the army, his brother, Edward Recano. become our advisor. He has been very active in leadership. For the past few weeks student speakers have visited the various New Britain junior High Schools and revealed the wonders of toreadors, and golden cities to their awed audiences. Doris King, Ann Rudge, Margaret Pampuro, Florence Wojtusik, and Ethel Alverde participated. The chapter was congratulated on expanding its program to other schools by Mrs. Parke Stearns, president of the PanfAmerican Inter' national League. Two dances have been sponsored. The proceeds of one went to the USO. At Christmas time, the members collected games for the Childrens Home, and ended the holiday season with a party. The club closed its year with a spring picnic in Westheld. Cur sincere thanks are extended to Mr. Howard for handling our ticket sale, to Mr. Recano for his neverffailing enthusiasm and support.

'K f i1X NEW BRIT THE BEEH Ode To A Bit of Amber Thou bit of gleaming rosin, Crystalled in the sea, Thou slow formed drop of agefold sap, The lifefblood of some pine, Glowing gold with inner fire, Warm and smooth to touch, Aeons past thou caught the feet Of ants, the wings of flies, And held them in thy sticky trap Through summer, winter, spring, and fall, For centuries of Time. The pine from whence you issued, Fell crashing to the dust, And other giants of the wood. Gave in, and sank to earth. The mountains leveled into plains, The salt seas rose up high, All huge and mighty works were gone, But thoufthou lingered on. Tiny, insignificant, still holding in thy grasp The ants, the flies, and insects that, Attracted by thy spicy scent, Touched thee, and were caught. The grand, the great, and wonderful All crumble into dust, Are scattered to the winds and skies, And disappear from sight, From all the face of all the earth, Frov ev'n the memories of men, Till, longfforgotten, weak, and dim, They pass on into Time. The little things alone remain, Held here by some force which, Seeming faint and dying, Proves relentless through the years. So thou hast lived the ages, In sun, in swamp, and sea, And living there within thy breast, Still as they were in life, Are the flies and ants and insects Thou caught so long ago.
